Donald Shoenholt Fined As Air Polluter for Brewing Coffee

Donald Shoenholt and Hy Chabbott, owners of Gillies Coffee Company, had a coffee bean roasting plant on 19th St in New York City. The coffee company was established in 1840. This is the year that Antarctica was discovered by Charles Wilkes, Samuel Morse patented the telegraph and William H. Harrison was elected as President of the United States.

In 2002, a city inspector dropped by on an anonymous tip. The inspector issued a $400 fine for “fugitive odors in an industrial area.” The business was ordered to eliminate all coffee odors in the future.

At the city’s Environmental Control Board administrative hearing, Donald stated, “Research has shown that coffee smells like coffee. There is nothing that can reasonably be done to separate the natural small of already roasted coffee from a coffee business. Under the current interpretation [of the NYC Air Pollution Control Code], shoe stores, barber shops, doctor’s offices and flower shops are all in violation of the law.”

Gillies Coffee Company was convicted of the violation on April 2, 2003, and the company accrued $30,000 in legal bills. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, NYC’s Department of Environmental Protection has also fined pickle companies, bagel bakeries and doughnut shops for air quality violations.
